Trump’s Joint Address Played Pretty Darned Well With Viewers

Within the liberal media there is quite a bit of vexation over Trump’s speech, which was pretty darned good. It leads to the typical headlines meant to take shots

It keeps going and going, where news organizations had sqeeeeeeee’d after an Obama speech.

How did the people feel about it?

(CNN) President Donald Trump’s first address to Congress received largely positive reviews from viewers, with 57% who tuned in saying they had a very positive reaction to the speech, according to a new CNN/ORC poll of speech-watchers.

Nearly 7-in-10 who watched said the President’s proposed policies would move the country in the right direction and almost two-thirds said the president has the right priorities for the country. Overall, about 7-in-10 said the speech made them feel more optimistic about the direction of the country.

Obviously, CNN attempts to throw cold water on this good news

The survey, conducted among a group of Americans who said in interviews conducted before the speech that they planned to watch and agreed to be re-contacted, only reflects the views of those who watched the speech, not of all Americans.

Says the company which attempted to tell us that Hillary would win based on surveys of 1,000 Americans. In all fairness, this survey was of 509 Americans.

On specific issues, Trump scored the highest marks for his proposed policies on the economy, with 72% saying those went in the right direction. Almost as many, 70%, said the same about his terrorism proposals. Slightly fewer, but still a majority, felt his policies on taxes (64%), immigration (62%) or health care (61%) were heading in the right direction.

Ideologically, about two-thirds saw Trump’s speech as about right, while roughly on-quarter (26%) pegged it as too conservative. Just 8% said it wasn’t conservative enough.

Mr. Trump made lots of promises and policy prescriptions during the speech. No, he didn’t give much in the way of details on how this will happen. These types of speeches never include much in the way of details, they are about lofty rhetoric. And people’s eyes would glaze over if they attempted to be policy wonks. But, now, the trick is to make them happen.

Thank goodness Democrats are being Adult about this

    Did anyone mention that the white clad democrats were missing their matching hoods?

    • Hank_M says:

      Yes, that was really weird.

        Perhaps a more fitting metaphor would be the white clad democrat Heavens Gate cultists are still harboring hopes that alien visitors will beam them up and away from earth.

    That was the best address in years. I was so sick of the fairy Marxist Obama and his fu*ki’ whistling lisp when he talked. notice how those patriotic radical ctrl-leftist sat on their hands and refused to clap…for a Gold Star Widow. But they managed to get some illegals and moslems in just to prove the radical left only hates America, they just love everyone else.

    Here’s a picture of todays democrats vs those of years gone by. Can you spot the change? I can’t.

    Good speech, good delivery.

    Nice to no longer have a globalist in office and instead a president who plans to work for this country. Thought his remarks on reducing regulation, the rule of law, merit based immigration, border security, and supporting law enforcement were right on.

    Extremely refreshing to hear a leader actually say the words “Islamic terrorism.”
    About time.

    I was happy to see him list Obama’s accomplishments, especially highlighting the “worst financial recovery in 65 years” and the incredible debt we’ve accumulated.

    He did explain why the democrats will never work with him: “True love for our people requires us to find common ground”. Hard to work with Trump when you consider half the population deplorable clingers.

    And I especially enjoyed this rebuttal to the 8 years of Barry Obama: “The time for small thinking is over. The time for trivial fights is behind us.”

    Indeed.
